TURLOCK // Police have announced the arrest of two suspects in connection to their investigation into a home invasion that took place in November of 2017.
On November 26th, a young girl called police from a home on the 2600 block of Castleview Drive, telling dispatch that two unknown persons had entered her home. One of the suspects found the girl and fled before police arrived, but not before allegedly shoving her to the floor and berating her.
In the weeks and months that followed, police began distributing what details they could, including a video of the suspect leaving the home.
On January 13th of this year, Tustin PD arrested 52-year-old Kevin Morgan and 48-year-old Jodi Northcutt for possession of stolen property. It wasn’t long, however, before Turlock Detectives ascertained that the pair had been involved in the home invasion robbery back in November.
Detectives continued to investigate and gather evidence, ultimately securing arrest warrants for the two. Northcutt was arrested at the Orange County Jail on February 7th and transported back to the Stanislaus County Jail, where she is housed on charges of home invasion robbery, burglary, and grand theft.
Following the conclusion of criminal proceedings in Orange County, Morgan was remanded to the custody of the California Department of Corrections. On March 16th, he was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail on the same charges as Northcutt.
